How to properly lubricate your InTheMarket.ie treadmill

Regular maintenance is key to ensuring your treadmill runs smoothly and lasts longer. One essential aspect of treadmill care is proper lubrication. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the process.

 

When to apply oil

The frequency of oil application depends on your treadmill usage:

  • Light usage: Every 30km or at least once a year.
  • Average usage: Every 6 months.
  • Heavy usage: Every 3 months.

To keep track, set a reminder on your phone for your next application. Note that your InTheMarket.ie treadmill comes pre-lubricated when delivered.

 

How much oil to apply

Less is more when it comes to treadmill lubrication. Use the liquid silicone oil provided with your treadmill. A good measure is ½ ounce or 15 millilitres. Apply the oil to the material on the InTheMarket.ie Applicator and let it soak in.

 

Application process

1. Locate the running board:
– The silicone oil should be applied to the running board under the treadmill belt.

2. Prepare the treadmill:
– Identify the part of the belt where your feet make contact.
– Lift the plastic safety runner that runs parallel to the belt using a tool like a metal butter knife.

3. Apply the oil:
– Lift the belt with one hand.
– With the other hand, place the oiled side of the applicator under the belt and use a brushing motion to apply the oil to the centre of the running board.
– Repeat this process a few times without adding more oil.

4. Distribute the oil:
– Turn on the treadmill and set the speed to 5km/h.
– Walk on the treadmill for 3 minutes, moving left and right to ensure even distribution of the oil.

5. Check the belt:
– Test your treadmill. If it feels sticky or sluggish, apply a bit more oil, but avoid over-application.
– To remove excess oil, use warm soapy water.

 

Adjusting the belt tension

If the belt is too tight to fit the applicator under, you may need to adjust the tensioners:
– Use the Allen key that came with the treadmill.
– Insert it into the tensioners located at the left and right at the back of the runway.
– Turn each tensioner anticlockwise one-quarter of a turn at a time until the belt is loose enough.
– After lubrication, tighten the belt back the same amount you loosened it, ensuring an equal number of turns on each side.

By following these steps, you can keep your treadmill in optimal condition, ensuring smooth operation and extending its lifespan. Regular maintenance will help you get the most out of your InTheMarket.ie treadmill.
